Fun evening with friends - good margaritas but eat before you go because the food is very average - everything comes with a bowl of corn chips (not my idea of a meal).

Although expensive and not fantastic service the food and vibe is great. The sangria is also on point. Has definitely become a go to. Vegetarian options are awesome and yummy, a rare treat.
